Death, Inequality and Social Difference Symposium

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventSeminar/workshop/course


Death and bereavement are considered universal experiences. Death is one of the few certainties in life and something which will inevitably affect us all. But this common adage can also mislead. Whilst many might expect to experience loss and we all face our own eventual demise, we do so in diverse cultural, societal, institutional, political and material contexts. We die differently, and in some cases with inequity as a defining feature of this experience. This year’s symposium will critically explore this diversity and ask timely and pertinent questions about a range of issues related to social divisions at the end of life.
